Founded in 1972 and situated in West London, International School of London (ISL) is an inclusive, co-educational, international school for students aged 3-18. An International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, ISL offers the Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) as well as the Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IB programmes combine intellectual rigour and high academic standards with a strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.
ISL is a multicultural, multilingual school and works with each child to devise a personalised learning programme tailored to their unique needs and goals. Its strong focus on student wellbeing is complemented by dynamic teaching practices. It was one of the first schools in the UK to offer the IB Diploma and consistently reports an above average score for the IB Diploma. Of the IB Diplomas awarded at ISL approximately 70% are bi-lingual. This far exceeds the world average of 23% awarded globally. ISL students have been placed in very competitive courses at Ivy League Universities and Oxbridge.
Nurturing every child's cultural and linguistic identity is key and home language and literacy (Mother Tongue) is an integral part of the curriculum. From Kindergarten through to Grade 12, students are offered four sessions per week in their home language. Non-English speaking students are given support through Intensive English or English as an Additional Language (EAL). ISL also offers a specialised one year transition course for students aged 15-17 who do not have a strong level of academic English and who wish to prepare for the IB Diploma programme.
ISL has an award winning and successful transitions programme, designed to ensure that all their new families settle quickly into their new lives. It also has a very strong extra-curricular programme and offers in excess of 40 after school clubs.
